Why choose Nature's Land Safaris? What is so special about them being located in Mwanza?
Just to remind you, Nature's Land Safaris is the leading tour operator in Mwanza, Tanzania. We have one of the largest fleets in Mwanza, with unparalleled, state-of-the-art vehicles! Our headquarters is based in Mwanza, however we have vehicles all over the country - majority of them being in Arusha and Mwanza.
Mwanza is perfectly located to connect your clientele to the Serengeti. Being based in Mwanza is advantageous for all parties involved as the duration of the safari is shorter, the cost is more inexpensive and it gives clients an opportunity to witness more Tanzanian beauty - including the Rock City!
For safaris that begin or end in Mwanza, the cost of paying double park fees to enter and exit Ngorongoro no longer remains. Furthermore, Mwanza is only a 2-hour drive to the Serengeti via Ndabaka gate. It allows clients to witness the beautiful Western Corridor of the Serengeti which has abundant game life including majority of the Big 5. There are also a variety of lodges to choose from in the Western Corridor as well as some accommodation based right outside the National Park to avoid concession fees if needed.
Mwanza's rich history along side the fact that it is surrounded by Lake Victoria gives Mwanza an exceptional bonus point. It allows clients visiting to explore Tanzania's deep and unique Sukuma culture. Furthermore, Mwanza is the only city in Tanzania which has an island National Park called Saa Nane Island National Park. It is a 30 minute boat ride from the National Park's head office which is in the heart of Mwanza City Centre.
Mwanza is also closely located to Rubondo Island National Park and the brand new Burigi-Chato National Park. The above mentioned National Parks are not as mainstream as Ngorongoro and Serengeti National Park but are just as unique and beautiful in their own ways. Moreover, it grants clients to have a more 'private & intimate' experience with nature when visiting these hidden treasures of Tanzania.
Another reason why Mwanza is a better option for some of your safaris is because of the distance to the Kenyan border. It is only a 2-hour drive from the Isebania Border to Ndabaka Gate (Serengeti National Park entrance). Furthermore, it is a 4-hour drive from our head office in Mwanza to Isebania Border thus, making it that much more accessible (and cheaper) for Nature's Land Safaris to handle all of your Isebania-based safaris. We have vehicles in both Mwanza and Arusha, so Namanga drop-offs and pick-ups are also very much possible.
Not to mention we also do car rentals and boast a fleet of luxurious cars including Landcruiser 200 series, Landcruiser Prado 150 series which can be used for pick-ups and drop-offs based on your inquiries.

At Nature's Land Safaris, we focus on ensuring our vehicles are of top-notch quality and opt for V8 Toyota Land Cruisers. The V8 Land Cruisers not only have more power, but their suspension is also more improved than of the standard Land Cruisers that do not have the V8 engine. We always opt for the better packages when converting our vehicles to ensure the clients have a truly comfortable safari. With Nature's Land Safaris, it is the small things that matter.
We also focus on ensuring the service provided by our guides is of the same high quality as our vehicles. For that reason, we hire experienced and professional guides who are fluent in English. Most of our guides also speak other languages including Spanish, French, Italian, German and Mandarin. Moreover, our guides receive regular training from Nature's Land Safaris to make certain that the highest standards are achieved. Furthermore, all guides have wildlife degrees, and are knowledgeable about the national parks in Tanzania including their roads, rules and regulations.
We offer packages as well as bespoke safaris tailored to our clients’ needs
